Rocket alert sirens went off in Ashdod, Ashkelon and the surrounding areas as well as in communities near the Gaza border.

A siren was also heard in Ma'ale Adumim, east of Jerusalem.

The barrage lasted over five minutes and came only 10 minutes before a 72 hour cease-fire is due to come into effect on Tuesday morning.
